I want to see all audio here available as mp3, streaming and downloadable, alongside the lossless reproductions except in those situations (are there any?) where an artist requests lossless archives only.

Yes, there are many. To name a few:

Gary Jules
Das Rut
Jason Mraz
Howie Day

As for your other part; the archive is in no way going to 'force' tapers to have mp3's on their recordings. that is the quickest way to cause lossless purists to just not upload their recordings in the first place. The current system (uploader has choice of lossless only or derivates; band decision on lossless / no derivatives superceeds taper choices) seems to be the best 'middle ground' we can do for all parties. We don't even want to think about all the raging mp3 debates we used to have here.
